Emails following nameserver change MX records

Hi - is it possible to keep emails with hosting company using MX records? I.e what happens to my emails after I change nameservers to Cloudflare? I have email lists with forwarding accounts set up which I wish to keep. Thank you!

While a broad question, if you change your nameservers then yes, it will affect MX records and in fact affect all records. To put it simply, the nameserver is the “phone book” which stores all of your DNS records. So if you change to a different “phone book”/nameserver, you will need to add your records to the new one.

To paraphrase what @allulal347 stated, bring over your existing email related records unchanged: MX, DKIM, DMARC, SPF.
